I just started to use Org-Roam to organize my DnD campaign, and I have fallen in love very quickly. Its perfect for how my brain works.
But, I’m realizing now that I want to be linking my roam documents against files on my computer. Specifically, I want to be able to search and link against my PDFs/Images/etc. like I would a roam doc.
I keep my org-roam directory on Dropbox for sync between my computers (that works great).
When linking to files, the following scenarios come up:
- I can also link against files that are kept on my Dropbox. This works, because all my computers share the same relative path via Dropbox.
- I can also link against files that are kept locally on my machine. This is harder because my computers do not share the same relative path. To the same point, I don’t want to be putting work files on my personal computer and vice-versa.
I figure I’m not the first person to tackle this problem. Has anyone been able to find a reasonable solution for doing this without mixing your computer’s files, and without putting everything on Dropbox?
